This recipe is a favorite in our family; we serve it often in the wintertime.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cups vegetable oil
8 tablespoons milk
1 cup mashed cooked sweet potatoes
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup golden raisins

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease bottom only of 8 1/2-by-4 1/2- by-2 1/2-inch loaf pan. Stir together flour, baking powder, salt and spices. With a spoon, stir in sugar, eggs, oil and milk; stir to blend. Stir in sweet potatoes, pecans and raisins. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 1 hour and 10 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 15 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack. For easier slicing, wrap loaf and store overnight in a cool place. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
